Networking and LinkedIn

Many international students and migrants struggle with networking. Many are unsure about how to talk and approach strangers appropriately, how to introduce themselves and what do they need to do to hear about job opportunities.

Australian Business Culture

Tuesday 21 May, 3.30pm-5.00pm

Business etiquette, or what’s acceptable and expected in a professional environment, varies from country to country. As a result, sometimes people will make mistakes which are not understood nor accepted, and it could create a negative first impression. In this workshop, you will learn about the main cultural differences found in Australian workplaces and some very practical tips that will help you fit into a new workplace environment. You will learn top tips to help you in your journey at work in Australia.
